Default Ford Racing Front Rotors. (5-lug question)

Ok guys, i need 5-lug wheeeels.
and im a broke sadass haha.
so ford racing offers these front break rotors in their catalogue, part number M-1102-C
and it says "Note" can be used with 1979-1986 if spindle, struts, and brake hardware are changed to 1979-1993 GT/5.0LX"
I have an 89 5.0 and i was wondering if i can just throw those bad boys on and have 5-lugs. in the picture it shows blots already in the rotors, but i wanna know if i have to buy spindles n all that junk.
Thanks in advance

resto is high as hell you could get that set up for at least 100 less..and to buy fms rotor your not that broke then check out the 5.0 mustang mag for dozens of places or buy a set of 94-95 front rotors at autozone and a set of axles at the local junk yard and upgrade you calipers for 18.00 a piece to 85 svo 76mm ones

So what your saying is the 94-95 rotors go right on with no swapping of calipers. Also I know you can get 2 right side ranger axle from a junk yard but, what drums do you use the ranger drums or what?

I am thinking the guy told me he put 89 or 90 brakes on the front of my 86 already just wanting the 5 lug swap.

with the 94-95 rotors dont you have to do spindles, and stupid **** too?
and with the fms rotors, i don have to change caipers and mumbo jumbo...
and the truth is, im not thaaat broke, but they are like $200, which isnt too bad.
and ill buy some ranger axels from a junk yard = dirt cheap.
so in the end it will still be cheaper than a $400 kit.
by broke i just meant looking for the cheapest way.
